Watchmen (6/9) Movie CLIP - Nite Owl Rescue (2009) HD
I admire its grim humor, utilitarian philosophical themes, unique universe and especially its well-choreographed and shot action sequences, which play out balletically in the sort of long, patient shots that are so unusual to see in modern action. There is, however, one scene of Watchmen that I can readily admit is unabashedly terrible. You need to watch it. Warning: Some nudity. The scene comes in a celebratory rush of endorphins as Nite Owl and Silk Spectre come down from the high of performing superhero work for the first time in 8 years, following a government ban on costumed heroism. It also makes said act embarrassing to watch for the audience, because it seems like a guileless boob delivery vehicle. Can we suggest a counselor for you?
